Art and Handcraft Sale Benefits Vassar Haiti Project

Art and Handcraft Sale Benefits Vassar Haiti Project

Interested in holiday shopping to benefit a great cause? Through December 21, a Haitian art and handcraft sale to benefit the Vassar Haiti Project is being held at the Mary C. Daly RSM Art Gallery, at the Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center. All are welcome to explore the gallery and artwork, Monday through Saturday, 9am to 4:30pm, through December 21. All purchases are tax deductible.

For over 17 years, the Vassar Haiti Project has funded primary and secondary school programs, a full-time clinic and sustainable development initiatives in Chermaitre, a remote mountain village in Northwest Haiti. The Haiti Project, based in Poughkeepsie, New York, engages Vassar College students in global citizenship curriculum and fundraisers through the sale of original and affordable Haitian art and crafts.

 

Mercy by the Sea supports art as the creative expression of the human spirit. The Mary C. Daly RSM Gallery exhibits established and emerging local and regional painters, sculptors, photographers and mixed media artists whose artwork express a powerful connection to creation in all its forms and engages conversation, learning, spirituality and growth. Typically, the exhibits change every two to three months.

For more information, call 203-245-0401 or visit MercyByTheSea.org. Location: 167 Neck Rd., Madison.
